i know it's not a butterfly, but . . .

i love mariah carey & this mix is one of my favorites . . . . i hope you'all enjoy seeing what visited me in my backyard saturday morning . . . . i never expected "it" to stay put for so long . . . you can see my arm gets tired and moves a lot, however, i also wanted to show the fence and how close "it" was (15') . . . honestely, i had to run inside for my camera . . . then oh GOD my batteries died, inside again to get the batteries on the charger, shot footage for a bit . . then, oh GOD, those replacement batteries from the charger weren't quite ready & didn't last long, lol! back inside for the ones i had just put on the charger hoping they'd have enough juice in them & back outside . . . thankfully they lasted until the card was full, lol! in the beginning there is just the audio w/video so you can hear somebody crying out for what i filmed . . . just before i started filming they were together . . . but i think "it"was hiding from the animal that you hear @ the beginning . . . i've heard them before so i'm sure that what you hear on the video is the same . . . it is so amazing that "it" stayed thru all my noise in/out/in/out, etc.! i'm trying to get better about having my batteries charged & camera close by . . . there are a lot of critters down here in Florida & look forward to bringing you a little peek @ all of them. enjoy!

i think "it" likes mariah too. good job getting your camera in action. i'm famous for my camera not working (battery) when everybody is ready with their pose.
